The classic sandwich is converted to dip form, but I used pastrami instead of corned beef which is a little spicier. No matter which you use, you're going to enjoy this truly delicious hot dip, which is also great warm. Or room temperature.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Place cream cheese in a large bowl; add chopped meat and sauerkraut, sweet pickle relish, mayonnaise, sour cream, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and shredded cheese. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon until well blended, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Transfer mixture to an ovenproof baking dish. Distribute evenly and smooth out the top. To increase the surface exposure, add texture, and encourage browning, roughen up the surface a bit with the tines of a fork.

  • Bake in preheated oven until bubbling and browned, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving, about 15 minutes.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Made 1/2 batch and used canned corn beef and all regular Swiss cheese. Didn't change anything else. Was looking forward to trying but thought it just OK. Served with rye toast celery sticks and scoop Fritos. Won't be making again. Read More

Made exactly as described, yet refrigerated it for a few hours before the game, tossed in the oven for 30 minutes, most excellent! Read More
